I-64 Afton Mountain

I worked on Afton Mountain as a Parts man for Oman Construction on top where the holiday Inn was. This was a beautiful place and a large undertaking to build this highway. I also think it is a shame for such a beautiful place to be run down and deteriated as it is. I have Fond memories of working there for 4 years when I was 19 years old.

Hi Rob this is a slim chance but I was wondering if you ever saw or knew of the Heizer Trucking Company who was hauling gravel and asphalt for this job. The owner was Haywood (B.H.) and he had a fleet of trucks. I used to ice skate at Holiday Inn when I was about 14. I too remember when this area was a tourist attraction and every time I pass it I wonder why it can't be again. Thanks!

It would be wonderful to get Afton Mountain back to a tourist attraction. The most beautiful place in the County and it is in shambles...
